Reviewed August 7, 2014

I took my 2 kids and their cousin (ages 15-19) this week to the Pumphouse in-door water park. What a blast! I have only been to the Great Escape so this seemed like an improvement. Entry was $35/head with $4-8 or so for lockers that use RFID tags on a wrist band. There is a fried food snack bar there and an amusement arcade area, too. Parking is very close.
We brought our own lunch and ate on picnic tables outside while taking in the gorgeous views of the peak and the tram shuttling folks up and down (you can go too for $10).
There are 4 tubes with different colors. 2 use tubes and 2 don't. All were a blast. La Chute is the killer where you drop 3 stories straight down. The lazy river is fun and gets wavy in one corner. The Flow Rider is fun, too. You need to sign an iPad release at the counter (and get a special wrist strap) if you want to try it standing up but on the belly is a blast.
Getting there is half the fun since you might be driving along 104, 105, 118 and 242, all beautiful Vermont roads (there are some covered bridges). Enosburg Falls has 2 eateries. We went to the cafe which was good and even had a Christmas tree in their bathroom.

We went for the first time two weeks ago, we all had a great time, even those who choose not to go into the water had a great time! There is plenty to do and experience for all ages. We had a Granddaughter who is 2 years old and 30 year old adult children, and ourselves, 50 somethings. The people working at the park were very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back for another fun day!

Have made the trip to the Pump House twice and each time it was great. The facilities are always clean and well staffed, and there are plenty of different attractions to keep you busy for hours. The first time there (January 2013) we went to the pool right at the same time as a large school group that had just come in off a bus. It packed the previously empty park which made for some lines, but overall they were handled well by the staff.

The only complaint I have is that there was some inconsistency between the lifeguards who run the Flow Rider feature. Some were super friendly and helpful to the newer riders, giving advice and letting them go again if they fell right away. Others were indifferent and just let the more experienced riders ride forever and splash all the kids waiting in line.

Well worth the trip during the winter or on a rainy day

From the lazy river that has a wavemaker to the FlowRider where you can surf or boogie board, this waterpark has enough for all ages to make you want to stay as long as possible.

Pool was clean, slides were really great. Lazy river was our favourite. There were life guards everywhere so good for little kids who want to be independent.
